Make coloured pasta jewellery

Make coloured pasta jewellery

Coloured pasta jewellery is a cute kids craft. Once you've tried this simple method for brightly colouring pasta, you'll never look back! Kids will have lots of fun making these colourful pasta accessories, not to mention developing their fine motor skills and learning about colours at the same time.

What you need:

  • uncooked hollow pasta (eg. penne)
  • resealable bags
  • food colouring
  • hand sanitiser
  • paper towel


Number of players:


Step 1: Gather what you need for the coloured pasta jewellery craft.

Step 2: Place your uncooked pasta into a resealable bag.

Step 3: Put a few squirts of hand sanitiser into the bag.  Zip up the bag and shake to lightly to evenly coat the pasta.

Step 4: Re-open the bag and pour a few drops of food colouring into the ziploc bag.  

Step 5: Zip up the bag and shake until the food colouring has mixed evenly through the pasta.

Step 6: Empty the coloured pasta from the bag onto some paper towel and leave it to dry.

Step 7: Get ready to thread. A tip for threading pasta for small fingers is to attach a match to the end of the string with sticky tape.

Step 8:  Once dried you can thread it onto string to make beautiful pasta jewellery creations.

Step 9: Voila! A gorgeous, coloured pasta necklace.
